I have been an avid Lady Tee fann since she came bursting into my club scene, I was so moved by this CD - one of her finest to date. 'Lovers lane', 'can't last a day without your love', 'the presure, 'Ms Coretta'and just about every track on this CD takes you on a journey from the great historical figures of our time, to recent isues such as the flood in new orleans 'harlem blues' - to men going to war in 'soldier boy'. And as for 'congo Square' - 'play that piano boy' - is a 'grower' - so glad you found your roots Lady Tee.

Awesome CD - and for anyone who thinks she needs to stick to her same style is very wrong - Teena's ability has always been to be true to her style whilst remaining contemporay.

Listening to 'marry' me and 'the rose and thorn' as well as 'lover's lane' makes me well up everytime. Teena you are a musical legend and that you have refused to be led - but rather do the leading - is commendable.

I loved Sapphire and especially La Dona - but this is the one...............any age will enjoy this - my 15 and 16 year old love 'ear candy' and the 'the pressure' and i love just bout everything..........as you rightly say Teena - what more can you give a child than milk and honey - and apart from your beautiful Rose - you have enriched my life with your music.............. can't wait for another release.

My one and only criticism is that i wished 'Harlem Blue' was a full length track.

Buy it - a must have for anyone

No other artist, living or dead, male or female, white or black has been able to touch me in the way this woman can. She will be my first and last preference always. She is the incomparable and idiosyncratic, Teena Marie. Whether crying, hollering, sustaining or whispering her notes, this lady is the purveyor of excellence when it comes to baring the soul. It's quite simple really...when she sings, I believe her. She has always taken me with her; I'm absorbed in whatever unique libretto she chooses to express, and Congo Square is no exception to the rule.

Not an easy thing to stay current and maintain the integrity that your original fan-base demand, but Teena Marie has almost managed to pull it off single-handedly by delivering an album incorporating cuts, both live and electronic. In a climate where her contemporaries have all but disappeared (Stephanie Mills, Cheryl Lynn et al) and the music Industry puts you out to pasture if you're over the age of 25, Ms Brokert is showing no signs of slowing down. What Marie has always had on her side is that she is also a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and arranger; she's not waiting around for anyone to write for her.
Congo Square is Teena's 13th album and marks 30 years plus in the record business. After much press and hoopla, an avid Marie disciple like myself waited patiently with bated breath for any morsel the Ivory Queen of soul would throw my way, especially as this was going to be her `jazz' album with collaborations that were rumoured to include the likes of Nancy Wilson and George Duke. Not sure what happened, but in the end Nancy was nowhere to be seen.

Teena Marie is a vocalist that could be singing about a can of baked beans and make you cry; she's a dynamic and dramatic chocolate mezzo-soprano.

Format: Audio CD
Five HUGE Stars!! STUNNING performances!! Multi-Grammy-nominated singer, composer, arranger, producer, multi-instrumentalist Teena Marie has served up one of the best R&B/soul performances of her star-spangled musical career. Into her third decade of soulful music, this platinum-selling artist just keeps going and going. And she doesn't hold back on quantity, serving up a whopping 16 new original songs, including the teaser "Can't Last A Day" that generated a lot of pre-release sales on iTunes and landed the CD in Amazon's Top 10 pre-orders. This one should appeal to a broad spectrum of radio stations, including hip-hop, jazz, and 'quiet storm' as she goes from R&B to funk to hip-hop to rap to jazz to blues, and New Orleans roots which she discovered are a part of her family tree: so "Congo Square", a New Orleans historical area in the 'French Quarter', comes from that fact, but the CD is dedicated to her daughter Alia Rose Le Beau who performs on "Milk N' Honey". The CD, which she produced for Stax Records, has the highest of production values including some impressive photographs and each song under "Alia Rose Music" is dedicated to famous singers (Smokey, Marvin, John Lennon, Rick, etc..), social giants, and "For all the Soldiers".

The 'best of the best' begins with the overpowering & lyrical performance of the title song "Congo Square" with keyboard wizard George Duke as guest in a sizzling performance that went straight to my iPod. The intimate love ballad "Lover's Lane" is an amazing 5-minute duet with Howard Hewitt that recalls the glory days of the duets between Teena and the late Rick James. "Ms. Coretta" is a marvelous song with commentary on Dr King's wife. "Baby I Love You" is a sweet love ballad with lots of interaction with the background chorus.

Since purchasing this CD, it has been playing continually. The tracks are beautifully composed. Ms Marie still has it going on and this album bears truth to that. It is a beautiful congregation of music but my favourite track is "Marry Me" which is continually played. Teena Marie's album as exceeded my expectations and I would recommend anyone who is going to purchase this CD, they will not have wasted their money.
